Abstract

In this paper we describe the process undertaken faculty as they design and implement a web-based assessment and data aggregation tool. The tool, Taskstream, became the vehicle for moving from a teaching focused culture to a focus on student learning. Teacher candidates are required to complete a professional electronic portfolio consisting of artifacts, evidence, and reflections documenting their growth as a teacher and demonstrating that they have met the state mandated learning outcomes. Development and implementation of the CSUS e-portfolio involved extensive faculty collaboration, planning, execution, support and resources. In addition, the evaluation of the electronic portfolio system was also conducted periodically. Data gathered during the design and implementation suggests that the technology helped to facilitate the process and deepen faculty's conceptual understanding of our program, as well as contributing to change in how the faculty think about student learning.
